'Rev. Joslah Ilcnson, for example, Is mentioned only twice, and then In n most casual way; as an exemplar of the "ante-bellum" thinking Negro he deserves a literal allowance of space.

This pure-blooded Negro, native of Maryland, was brought up In slavery and supplied n model for Mrs. Stowe's Uncle Tom. As a young mnn he preached to his fellow slaves, nnd once took his master's "people" over Into Kentucky, to prevent their being nttached by the planter's creditors. He had n master named St. Clare, whose young daughter probably suggested the "little" Eva of the story. Ilcnson had paid $r00 toward the price of his free dom, but was taken to...
